Our Backyard Makeover look


Please ignore our peeling deck. We really want to rip it out.
These lemongrass plants came a little smaller than expected! But they said they will start growing like crazy when planted.
Love these Z gallerie lanterns.

Those latterns are stunning! What a gorgeous and relaxing patio you have.... Just the perfect place to sit on a Saturday morning and have a sweet tea and read the paper and magazines!

Hi =)

You have a really cute daugther! I love the Oriental bird cages (or are these lanterns?) on the table. It really looks extraordinary. I hope that the lemongrass will grow as promised^^.
